I have just installed a new 2001 Johnson 30 on my 1965 Boston Whaler 13' hull. The original steering setup was the "pulley and cable" system and is long since gone. I have a beautiful new Mahogany steering console and interior, and want to use the newer teleflex setup. The problem is that this hull has the notched and curved transom - which is one of the reasons that I like the boat. Anyway, I have a clearance problem with the cable and need to come up with a tube arrangement on the motor which can be 2-3" forward of the existing motor tube to gain the necessary clearance. Before I spend a lot of time designing something and having a machine shop put it together, it occurs to me that there must be a lot of folks who have had the same problem. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

You can get a tube that mounts to the transom. That should take care of things. http://www.tfxmarine.com/pdfs/steeringpdfs/connection.pdf
